The Comment Awards Would Memorize Pi For You

Good day, wanderers! It’s the mathiest day of the year but we all know the real hero of today is pie. Cherry, rhubarb, apple, pumpkin and sweet potato pie. Pie pie pie. Go get yourself a slice.

This week we checked in with Lindsay Lohan, fell in love with a girl and planned a retroactive coming out party.

We’re at the halfway point of March which means we’re still flush with Top Five Lists commemorating Autostraddle’s fifth birthday. Anime, cat, potato and SXSW lovers will not be disappointed. Okay, so the potato list actually has 10 items, but who’s going to object to more potatoes?

Photos from season 2 of Orange Is The New Black  were released and to steal some words from Mey, “OH HOT DAMN.” Speaking of TV, recaps for Pretty Little Liars, The Fosters and Star Trek are hot off the presses (or would be if we weren’t on the internet and had hot presses instead of panini-makers).

Now let’s check out this week’s winning wordsmiths!

    • What is that word supposed to be?? I can only read the first two letters and then it’s just a bunch of “Is it sh? Is it m? Is that an…i? WHAT IS GOING ON THIS IS WHY I ONLY PRINT EVERYTHING”

      • “дышишь”

        there are only so many roots, so the “ды” bit that’s recognizable at the start limits things.

        “you [singular] breathe”, approximately.

  1. Aahhh, Velma. Pretty sure that’s aa root right there- although I’m using root to mean “querish person I saw and could identify with/ see myself being” as well as crush object or whatever.
    Anyways, thanks so much for the honor! Also, for the swell article the comment was on :)

    • … aaaannd I’m instantly noticing all the spelling bungles and struggling with my impotent urges to fix them.

  2. Mister…..Potato……….Head………………….

    ………i’m gonna need a moment or 50

  3. Having studied Russian in college, Russian cursive makes me cry, too. And since they only write in cursive…

    Also I’m trying to figure out that word and WHAT OH GOD MY BRAIN DOESN’T LIKE IT.
